Googling for George
On BuzzFlash -- Ask Google, "Who will be president in 2004?" for example, and it will answer (as of this writing, anyway) "Howard Dean for America." A "Will George Bush steal the 2004 election?" query provides information on how taxpayers gave Bush $67 million to steal the election the last time around. Then, too, (in case you've been without e-mail for the last few months and haven't heard), there's the exercise of typing "weapons of mass destruction," into the Google search engine and hitting "I'm feeling lucky" only to discover that "The weapons you are looking for are currently unavailable. The country might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your weapons inspectors mandate."
In other words, not only does Google divine what's useful, it's fun for the whole family.
